SEI-Asia works at the forefront of socially and environmentally sustainable development in Asia. Since establishing our office in Bangkok, Thailand in 2004, we have built a strong presence and identity in the region through high-quality and credible scientific research in gender, climate change, water resource management, disaster risk reduction, agriculture, and urbanization, coupled with an effective policy engagement and expanding public and media outreach.
SEI Asia is seeking a highly motivated individual with a solid understanding of development and climate change adaptation issues in Asia and the Pacific. We are particularly looking for someone who is keen in using research or knowledge production as a vehicle to advance development agendas. The Research Associate will work towards producing knowledge on how at-risk communities can anticipate, absorb, and adapt to the impacts of climate change in a manner that is rights-based and inclusive. The successful candidate will be based in SEI’s Asia Centre in Bangkok, Thailand and will be part of the Climate Change, Disasters and Development cluster. The Research Associate will pursue research projects that reflect SEI’s mandate. Through its research, SEI seeks to share knowledge, promote debate and contribute to evidence-based policy making for more sustainable, resilient and inclusive societies across Asia. Research activities are carried out in a collaborative manner, building and strengthening engagement with varied stakeholders ranging from local and national governments, multi-lateral agencies, NGOs and local community organisations.
The Research Associate will report directly to the assigned Line Manager (Cluster Lead) and respective project leaders/managers that they will work with, and under the overall supervision of the Centre Director.
The Research Associate will be expected to work with colleagues from all research teams in SEI Asia including water resources, urban, gender, policy, and agriculture in developing cross-cutting programs of work. The role will also require collaboration with other SEI centres and colleagues internationally. The research associate will also contribute to other SEI-wide activities and reports as appropriate.
